Sol will play Macbeth while Cruz is Romeo opposite GMA-6 Artist and Starstruck Finalist—Analyn Barro as Juliet. Both talents who were discovered and have been harnessed by internationally-acclaimed TV and film master director—Maryo J. Delos Reyes are no strangers to acting on stage. In 2015, Sol was featured in a Virgin Labfest play titled—‘Huling Huli’, which was directed by filmmaker Lawrence Fajardo; while Cruz, also debuted in a stage production last year via of the same production group and play–‘Katwiran na May Katwiran’, also directed by Aurora Yumol.

The two artists play vital roles as they appear as two opposing parties, the crises of the story, centered in political upheaval swings to the love scene-cum-balcony scene of Romeo and Juliet, as Macbeth received prophesies of the Three Furies that he leads an uprising Prince of Scotland as he led an uprising. And Macbeth did not escape death himself nor thus Romeo. Witness how Shakespeare interrogates his ‘imagined’ characters.

Veteran actress, theater director, a three-time Palanca awardee—Aurora Yumul is the artistic director of Fringe Bnefits Production and directs the deconstruction made possible by De La Salle University Medical Center-Dasmariñas City. It is also sponsored by 1771 Group of Restaurants, Make You Nanay Proud Foundation, Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) Teacher’s Partylist, Office of the City Manila Mayor, Le Heim Music Center and Councilor Yul Servo.
